Complementary Fitness Mindfulness
Choices: We have a choice to think negative thoughts and Be Negative and feel down or to think positive thoughts and Be Positive, feel great and have a bright outlook on life.
Health + Lifestyle
Drink coconut water after a workout – it’s all natural, doesn’t contain sugar or substitutes, is full of electrolytes including potassium and minerals to hydrate your body.
Posture: Good posture creates a finely aligned body structure. Visualize your ankles, knees, hips, shoulders and ears positioned in a straight line without being rigid. This means a weighted cord falls in a straight line from your ear lobe to your ankle bone. Your musculoskeletal structure is balanced, with no muscle or joint stress from an out-of-alignment body component. Optimum posture provides benefits: more oxygen into the body through correct breathing encouraging diagphragm and lungs to freely expand and contract. Back pain can be reduced with good posture. Good posture helps protect joints commonly used for balance, standing and walking. Hip, knee, back and neck joints may experience less stress if you maintain optimum posture and finally, you will likely enhance your physical appearance and experience more overall confidence when your body is aligned correctly.
Stress less and more sleep:
We all suffer with stresses and strains in life but an inability to switch off and reduce stress, can play havoc with your hormones. Sleep is really important for lowering your stress levels and without it, levels of melatonin (the brain’s sleep chemical) and adrenaline will be out of balance. Learn to relax, learn stress and relaxation techniques and get to bed by 10 or 10.30 pm and have a good night’s sleep.
Also: Drink enough water to hydrate you but drink alcohol in moderation. Alcohol can affect sleep patterns and increase blood pressusre.
There are more mindfulness, health and lifestyle tips and advice in the brand new Lifestyle Classes as above.
